“Dim sum - a good solution when you do not what to choose”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Staff was very helpful (and hardworking!) and patient. Food was tasty for the kids and the older ones as well.
One comment - it’s a few minutes' walk from Dam Square but it's a restricted area. You can take a taxi up to the bridge next street.

“Do not waste your time or money!!!!!! Choking hazard!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

We went hear for our tea our first night in the dam ,we ordered chicken and sweet corn soup for starters!!! I swallowed a sharp object then realised the other half was floating in my soup!! A toothpick in actual fact! Nearly choked) the rest of the food was sent back as for I didn't feel like eating after a toothpick was stuck in my throat ! Also all the food is packed so it isn't actually a proper Chinese ! Do not go ..........

“Quick and dirty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

you can eat there if you are in a hurry. We have ordered and received our meal in no more than 5 minutes. The food was ok, but price performance quite low.

“Good Dim Sum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

For a relatively ordinary-looking place, Restaurant Good Fortune serves decent dim sum. Ours was an early visit, so we ordered from a menu rather than getting to pick from a passing cart like we‘re used to doing. I’m not sure if that’s even an option here. Either way, everything we ordered was good (except, maybe, the spring rolls which we found kind of blah). Their house red wine was satisfactory and they offered Tsingtao, so drinks were covered as well.

The service was adequate, but the staff were accepting deliveries the entire time we were eating, so it was hard to tell if they would have been more attentive otherwise.

Payment was accepted only in cash or by using a Maestro card.

The premises were clean and the prices were reasonable, so we left comfortably full and wandered through Amsterdam’s China Town with a smile on our faces.

“Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Was not sure to give 3 or 4 stars. This place definitely isn't average, I just think it's good!
Comfortable seating, clean, efficient and friendly service, and actually a cosy atmosphere (unusual for a Chinese place on Zeedijk...). Had Peking duck with pancakes, which was OK (this place does not specialize in duck though) and a chicken dish with white rice. Tasty and a good portion. They even had remarkably good red house whine by the way! Place was fairly busy on a Friday night, but not packed. All in all not a bad choice to eat Chinese food.
